Patrick, Etal. I've been trying to build from source for some time.Â Followed instruction and videos found on line.Â Failed miserably and am exasperated trying that route....thus this attempt at using a built package. Maybe this version is an update rather than a complete build.Â Details are quite sparse so it is hard for a nubi to say. All help is greatly appreciated!

However, GEMPAK is not for the faint of heart, but if you love her, she will work with you, without fail or nary an issueÂ If you wish to use GEMPAK for specific needs in a production environment, such as deep meteorological analysis or climatological analysis, or for other stable specific needs, I will help walk you through the steps of a stable build since I've been using her from the beginning. One of the many great things about GEMPAK is that once she is built properly, she runs like a Pronghorn Antelope along the steppes of the Continental Divide, and one only need update a table or two for the occasional adaptation that is necessary.Â Best of luck! --patrick http://GoodFriar.com/ ..
